DS Awareness Month Spotlight – Meet Isaac!

Down Syndrome Awareness Month – Day #8!

Hello! My name is Isaac! I’m 8 years old and in 1st grade. I love my family, dancing to music, my cat Pumpkin, watching Sid the Science Kid, wrestling with my dad and laughter. I am thankful for DSL and my friends who I know there.
